Guitarist with neat shred lines


View Full Version : Guitarist with neat shred lines

So I've pretty much lost all my nice shred lines, because I hardly shred anymore, and now I guess i'm starting to get into it again, not like rusty cooley shred but like guthrie govan petrucci style shred, because I can't stand my simple 3 note per string (gilbert style :p: shred, no offence or anything hehe).. Anyways I know tons of shredders but I'm looking for some like guitar pro tabs that have really cool shred lines/phrases.. thanks alot!

Check out anything from Jeff Loomis. Lots of weird sweep patterns and economy picking runs.

look at some cacophony stuff, marty friedman and jason becker have awsome lead lines .

Magnus Karlsson you need to check him out he is a stunt guitarist and is so good

Also Jorn Lofstad from Pagans Mind imo the best guitar player out there and also has the best tone.

Nils Norberg look on my profile for his song its amazing no one sweeps like that man with so much melody..

try making ur own?

No seriously, take like I dunno maybe a jazz phrase or something and add in a cool rhythm or some other notes. Or take some away.

What petrucci and govan do have alot to do with jazz in some way. With alot of outer scalar and modal notes.

Thanks guys, not a fan of Jeff Loomis, and i'm checking out Magnus Karlsson right now. I like the band too. and darrenxx haha well yeh i guess i could make my own, but its too hard because muscle memorization kind of comes i nplace. Yeh the passing tones chromatic stuff is cool too..

Allan. Holdsworth.

Holdsworth "neat"? Fiendish and downright evil, more like. How he manages to switch so leisurely between inside and outside playing is beyond me (and, from what I've heard over time, every other guitarist alive). One moment he's playing a cute lil ditty that makes you think "yeah, that's the kind of jazz I can live with!", and the next moment he's suddenly it switched it up to whole tone/diminished/augmented and you think "wtf was THAT?!"

Hard Hat Area being a suitable example.

+1 I was going to say Friedman just because I'm learning Tornado of Souls :p:

Jason Becker is an amazing player, Shawn Lane is worth a look he had some incredible stuff.

Hah , Holdsworth is way out of my league or aynones...

Holdsy, Lane, Guthrie, Vai... That's who interests me, really. Dave Wiener's a killer player, as is Eric Johnson. Marty Friedman, obviously...

That's about it for my memory atm. :)
